August 1999 Tim Hills: Heavily leaning, it may at some time in the future need to be propped. Hollow with a large internal stem. An outpouring of growth where the hollow closes over. Girth of 21′ 6” (655cm) at the ground affected by lean, and 18′ 7” (566cm) at both 3′ and 5′.
2015 – Paul Wood: The stooping branches of this fine yew challenged us but we were able to record a measurement of 21′ 8” (6.60m) at the ground. It was no longer possible to photograph as recorded in 1999 and 2004; only in one place had the tree been trimmed back sufficiently (to stop stock in the next door field from coming into contact) for a close up of the bole.
